KS2 Rainforest Poster Resources - The Great Kapok Tree

Writing and speaking & listening prompts and scaffolds to support EAL learners in:
• Planning the writing of a persuasive text about saving the rainforest
• S&L prompts- language focus on cause and effect sentence constructions
• S&L prompts- language focus on how to structure sentences for a debate
• Reading and writing activity- language focus on how to make sentences have more impact
• Reading and writing activity- models of what to write in an introduction
• Writing prompts for what should be on the poster

The activities do not refer directly to ‘The Great Kapok Tree’ so it is not necessary to read the book to use them.

This is suitable for:
• The whole class
• EAL students (early stage, advanced stage)
